New York Jets quarterback Trevor Siemian has been lost for the season. Head Coach Adam Gase announced that Siemian is lost with an ankle injury.
He suffered the injury on Monday Night Football against the Cleveland Browns. Siemian was the starter for the Jets in the game as Sam Darnold missed the contest as he is dealing with mono.
Siemian suffered torn ligaments in his ankle when he got injured. He is expected to undergo surgery after getting injured on a Myles Garrett sack.
Now, with Darnold out and Siemian lost for the season, Luke Falk is the team’s starter. New York will be in the market for at least a backup quarterback.
When Siemian started the game for the Jets, it was the first time he started an NFL game since 2017 when he played for the Denver Broncos. He has struggled away from working with Gary Kubiak, who was his head coach with the Broncos.
The 27-year-old Windermere, Florida native was a seventh round pick by the Broncos in the 2015 NFL Draft. He spent his first three seasons with the Broncos.
Siemian missed the entire 2018 season. He played in one game during the 2019 season before being lost for the season.

In his three-plus year career, he has appeared in 27 games with 25 starts. He is 13-12 as a starter in the NFL.
Siemian has gone 498 of 841 for 5,689 yards with 30 touchdown passes and 24 interceptions.
